WWW.AZCHORDS.COM | Lindisfarne - Lady Eleanor Tabs | Ver. 1
This is entirely from memory, and I never could get some of the words:
Tuning: Standard EADGBE
Playing: Bar chords, E shapes:
Bm = Em bar 7
G = E bar 3
A = E bar 5
Intro: alternating Em, Bm
Nasty fey magicians sit in lotus on the floor
Belly-dancing beauties and their power-laden swords
Hide my didn't think it could be much more
G A Bm . . . <- fade
When in walked with the Lady Eleanor.
She tied my eyes with a ribbon of a silken ghostly thread,
I gazed with troubled vision on an old four-poster bed
Where Eleanor had risen to kiss the neck below my head
And bid me come along with her to the land of the dancing dead,
G A Bm
But it's al - right, Lady Eleanor,
G A Bm
Al - right, Lady Eleanor,
G A E Esus4 E Esus4
I'm alright where I am.
[ a bit of tab (bass-line):
She gazed with a love and beauty, like a mother to a son,
Like live and die, and see and be, and all rolled into one,
Then all at once I heard some music playing in my bones,
The same old song I'd heard for years, reminding me of home,
Then creeping on towards me with their lips with tongues of fire
A host of golden demons screaming "Lust!" and "Base desire!"
And when it seemed for certain that their screams could get no higher
I heard a voice above the rest, screaming "You're a liar!"
But it's alright, Lady Eleanor,
Alright, Lady Eleanor,
G A [E(bar7) Bm] <- ???
I'm alright here in your arms....
I suspect those last chords are something entirely different, but can't
remember much except they _are_ simple chords.
If anyone can supply the missing words or correct any others I have wrong,
PLEASE Email me. It's an old favourite, and I'd like to get it right!
If memory serves me, Alan Hull wrote it.
p.s. I love the mandolin work, too, but the tab for that would be a bit
